Do you remember those movies in which every single character would suddenly break out into a perfectly choreographed dance when music played, no matter what he/she/they were doing before?

The movie 500 Days of Summer is a great example of how music can set the tone for an entire scene.

In the film 500 Days of Summer, Joseph Gordon Levitt’s character Tom is elated to have slept with his dream girl, “Summer” (Zooey Deschanel), and steps outside into a dance number set to Hall & Oates’ “You Make My Dreams.” The happiness Tom feels is infectious—so much so that everyone he meets in New York City begins to dance, in complete sync to the number, with him.

Although it might be impossible to create a perfect random flash mob every time our mood is just right, we can get pretty close by creating playlists that fit these moods. Even better, we can name the playlists to fit our day; knowing that once you press play, there will be no doubt that they’re perfect for what you need.

Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube are all great music streaming services. They offer a huge collection of songs and videos, for some, that can make your life more fun. They also allow you to create playlists with your favorite songs, which helps you make plans with friends or share what you listen to with others on social media.

Questions To Ask Yourself When Building Your Playlist

Now that you have a healthy dose of inspiration let’s take a look at what you need to create the best playlist for your listening pleasure.

1. Does the order of your playlist matter?

It does if each track tells its own part of a larger story. However, if all of the songs tell different parts of the same story, listening to them in shuffle mode won’t ruin your experience.

Keep in mind the longer the playlist, the more likely it is to get shuffled.

2. Are you trying to create a playlist that evokes a certain mood or feeling?

When creating a playlist to keep your heart pumping and motivation strong in the gym, steer clear of Eric Clapton’s “Tears In Heaven.” And if you need to create a romantic atmosphere—maybe skip any songs from Slipknot.

Pick out that spark that you want your music selection to maintain and fill it with songs like those.

3. Is this playlist a guilty pleasure or made to be shared?

Are you secretly a huge fan of Nickelback but don’t want to be teased for it by your friends? Or are you creating this playlist intending to entertain yourself and keep your pals grooving all night long?

You’ll want to consider how many, as well as whose, ears will be listening when designing your playlist. So, get creative, but don’t expose yourself trying to be too much and have people not understand what you meant with the name since they don’t get it. Of course, this doesn’t apply if the playlist is your own little secret.

4. Is the playlist limited to one event or made to be listened to on repeat?

Suppose you’re making a playlist for your sister’s wedding, including songs that everyone can enjoy—even if they aren’t your favorites. A good tip here is to check the hit parade from radio stations and best-played songs by year for the last 5 years. You will find those songs that you loved but forgot it was a hit 2 years ago, and you simply didn’t remember them.

If you’re looking for a playlist that will stand the test of time, it’s important to include songs that aren’t likely to make you want to throw your headphones out the window.

5. What is the best playlist name to fit your compilation?

When it comes to choosing your playlist name, there are a lot of options. You can give it a name that describes the music or artists in the playlist, like “Best Pop Songs of 2019” or “My Favorite Hip Hop Artists.” You could also choose to go with something silly like “Playlist for My Bae” or “Party Music for Your Next Event—Free.” Be sure to bookmark this article so you can reference it anytime you need a dose of inspiration to help you create the perfect playlist name!

The first step to finding the best playlist name is to ask yourself what qualities you look for in a playlist name. Do you want it to be unique? Should it describe the music inside? Or should it be memorable, fun, and shareable? If you found a playlist name that has all these characteristics and answers the questions, you may have found the perfect playlist name!

Now that you have your perfect music lineup and the best playlist name (you did come up with a good one, after all), you want to share it with all of your friends—not just those who use Spotify, right? But how do you share your playlist with your friends and have it show up on their app if they’re not Spotify users?
